About

Express your geek

Geek Nest began a long time before I officially opened an Etsy shop for it in 2014. I've been making candles and jewelry since childhood and began selling at craft shows in 2011 after completing graduate coursework in Psychology. When I started my career in mental health, I felt like there was a big piece missing out of my life still. I realized quickly that I had been neglecting the creative side of me, the part of me that loved painting and crafting. So, I created my first Etsy shop in 2011 which eventually evolved into Geek Nest. I'm grateful for the opportunity to fulfill that passion in my life and I have my customers to thank for that. Thank you.

When I'm not working at my research job or on Geek Nest, I love reading and writing. I particularly enjoy science fiction; whether it's a good book or movie. I have a biweekly Dungeons and Dragons game and currently play a Dwarf Warrior. I have an unhealthy obsession with Doctor Who and Star Trek. My favorite board game is Terra Mystica and my favorite comic book is Rat Queens. I love the outdoors and hope to backpack the John Muir Trail one day soon.

I hope to inspire people to decorate their homes with their love of geek, host parties based on hobbies, and get the most out of what they love. I invite all to share my passions and create your own geek home. Life is filled with wonderful things, enjoy them and enjoy the adventure.
